Interactivity test: Testing service availability (part 9)

September 1, 2023 | by Meik Kottkamp

5G NR is a cellular technology that supports ultra reliable low latency (URLLC) services. Latency and high throughput have become important KPIs and the interactivity test from Rohde & Schwarz can take measurements in the field by combining access to transport capacity (bit rate), transport latency and transport continuity, all in a single test case.
